11 Pioneers have their best times

October 13, 1994|By Roch Eric Kubatko | Roch Eric Kubatko,Sun Staff Writer

Eleven runners on Anne Arundel Community College's cross country team posted their fastest times of the year at Saturday's Tidewater Invitational in Salisbury.

Once again, the men were led by Bobby Downs, who covered the 8-kilometer course in 28 minutes, 4 seconds, good for fifth place out of 45 runners.

"He's a work in progress," coach Jim Fontaine said. "He's getting better and better. He's living proof that hard work pays off. Too many runners shut it down over the summer, but not Bobby. He's very disciplined and focused."

Pete Dugan has established himself as a solid No. 2 runner, Fontaine said.

On the women's side, Lynn Kurchock took third in 20:04. She had hoped to better her time last year of 19:41. Kerri

Lindenmeyer came in 14th, and Marcela Fonseca was 17th.
